Lego Dimensions Red Bricks

Obtaining Red Bricks

Obtaining red bricks are done in the adventure worlds. Each adventure world contains a special red brick. Most red bricks are cosmetic, fun type bricks to enhance your game experience, while a few are more directly helpful to the gameplay.

While exploring each of the adventure worlds, a character in a shield will appear, as depicted on the left. As you get closer to that character, it will run away and a timer will appear above its head. You’ll have 20 seconds to catch it before it disappears. If it disappears before you can reach it, you’ll have to find it again.

You won’t be able to just run on foot to catch the character. You’ll want to use a vehicle or character with flying. To claim the red brick, all you have to do is touch that characters shield.

Benefits of the Red Bricks

After finding a red brick, you can return to the central portal in Vorton to purchase the benefit effect. After purchasing, the effect can be turned on or off through the main menu.
